California Assembly Bill 485, The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, has inspired stars such as Russell Simmons, Nikki Sixx, Kunal Nayyar, Leona Lewis, Alicia Witt, NASCAR Driver Leilani Munter, WWE’s Tyler Breeze and many more to take to social media and create a storm using #YesOnAB485.
Assembly Bill 485, The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, is a landmark bill authored by Assembly Members Patrick O’Donnell and Matt Dababneh, which saves animals’ lives and stands up to the cruelty of puppy mills. The legislation would replace puppy mill animals by showcasing dogs, cats, and rabbits from local animal shelters and rescue groups in pet retail stores statewide.
Social Compassion In Legislation, the animal advocacy group sponsoring the bill, states that AB 485 will be a gigantic step forward in solving the state’s pet overpopulation crisis and will shut the door to the socially unacceptable cruelty of mill-bred animals.
The bill will be heard on April 18, 2017 in the Assembly Business and Professions Committee.
